My Brightest Diamond Releases Latest Album, 'All Things Will Unwind'

Quirky chanteuse Shara Worden speaks with us about moving back to Detroit and schlepping around all her instruments for performing in a 'small suitcase'

As the frontwoman for her eclectic group known as My Brightest Diamond, Shara Worden has worked with a series of collaborators (as well as being a former backup singer and performer for Sufjan Stevens). For her latest effort, All Things Will Unwind, we asked the incredibly gifted singer and musician to come into the studio to discuss her move from Brooklyn to Detroit, the birth of her first child, and why she decided all of her instruments should be small and fit into a suitcase (it was because of all that travel and having a kid in hand). She performed three songs from the album, including "Escape Routes," "Everything is in Line" and what we think could be the next great protest song for the 99 percent: "High, Low, Middle." Check them out below.
